SINGAPORE - Two more men were charged in court on Thursday (Dec 1) with having hard disks containing obscene videos for the purpose of circulation.

This brings the total number charged for this case to four men.

Ong Yi Jie, 26, allegedly had a hard disk with 400 obscene videos at his home at Segar Road on Nov 30, while Clarence Tang Jia Ming, 24, represented by Mr Kelvin Lim, is said to have 300 such videos at his home in Loyang Rise on Nov 29.

The prosecution applied for the duo to be remanded at Central Police Division as they are believed to be involved in similar cases, and to trace other co-accused.

They will be back in court on Dec 8.
